Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I tripped over the computer cord and then turned my big toe under on my other foot. I immediately was on the floor, in a lot of pain, to the point it made me nauseous. My toe was turning in towards the other toes. I asked my family to get Helichrysum, PanAway, Trauma Life and Peppermint. I licked the Peppermint from the back of my hand to relieve the sick feeling. My husband applied the PanAway and Helichrysum to my toes. And I put Trauma Life on the back of my neck to relieve the 'shock' of it all. I did apply ice for a short time too. I applied oils about every two hours. I used Idaho Balsam Fir and Copaiba. This oil amplifies the effect of all the oils you use in conjunction with it. I continued using the PanAway as well.

The second day I used a small splint for the toe to help it straighten. I was able to move about a bit without a lot of pain. I know applying the oils right away and consistently helped reduce the swelling dramatically. Three years ago I hurt my right toe, did not have PanAway with me and by the time I got home it was swollen. This time the toe hurt more but is not as swollen.

As of day 4, there is some bruising and redness but it is straightening and the pain has decreased dramatically. So my advice is always have your oils with you. I would apply the same oils to an injured ankle, hand or wrist too.
